Graduates are well prepared to work on all types of farm, advise farmers or work in the food manufacturing/processing industry. Training for top quality agricultural engineers to serve the domestic and international markets of the future. The tropical climate has come to Poland too, namely to the University of Environmental and Life Sciences in Wrocław! Now you can take a new program of studies – the principles for tropical agriculture. The university has been preparing to offer this field of studies for a long time. We have signed agreements with companies and institutions where our students can take professional training. The program of studies has been prepared in such a way as to equip the graduates with the best possible skills and competences. The basic knowledge acquired during the studies will enable them to specialize in the field which will fit the graduates best. The program of studies is based on the following main subjects: mathematics, botany, plant physiology, zoology, microbiology, physics, chemistry, biochemistry and specialized subject, such as soil science, genetics, plant and animal husbandry, animal anatomy, soil cultivation and protection, agricultural engineering, meteorology and hydrology, plant protection, basic forage science and animal nutrition, chemistry of foods, basic water management in the natural environment, general technology of foods, storage of raw materials and food products, plant cultivation, technology of plant raw materials, analysis of foods, biometrics, technology of animal raw materials, farm animal breeding, prevention of farm animal diseases, wellbeing of animals and hygiene of animal production, general ecology, economics of agricultural production), as well as supplementary (elective) subjects – to be selected by the student. The important elements of the program include the four-week-long vocational training taken after the completion of the second year of studies and the professional training after the sixth semester. Prospects for graduates We hear a lot about the sciences of the future, most of them being technical, however, before humankind can make use of those technical developments it needs to be fed. The need for the agricultural production to grow is more and more vital. By 2050, the world population is expected to reach 9 billion and people from the developing countries, which is where almost the whole growth of the world population takes place, need a more varied menu. By 2030, the demand for food will grow by 40%, which is why it is necessary to use new areas for agricultural purposes, including the tropical regions, such as Africa, South America or Central Asia, where it should be a priority to solve the problem with hunger.The graduates of the Principles for Tropical Agriculture will be the specialists able to face the challenges of the future. The aim of the studies in this field is to prepare the graduates with qualifications to cope with various tasks in the area of agriculture and food production. The graduates of this field of studies will have knowledge in the area of food production and processing technology on the local, regional, national and global scale. They will know the threats connected with human activities and the basic risks connected with the production and processing of agricultural products. The studies also prepare the graduates to hold managerial positions in the scope of food management as well as to run an agricultural farm. The knowledge and skills of the graduates will also focus on the aspects of sustainable agricultural operations (agroecology), which makes those studies special and fundamentally different from other fields. Enrollment The candidates to study in this field are expected to possess the command of English enabling them to take an academic course of studies (minimum B2 level). The candidates for the first year of the first cycle studies are admitted on the basis of the results of the qualification procedure, which is a competition by nature. The qualification procedure is based on the final grades obtained in the secondary school diploma examination in English and one of the subjects selected from the following: biology, chemistry, physics, geography, mathematics or social science. The candidates who have been preliminarily qualified for the first year of studies are required to provide the following documents within the deadline set in the enrollment calendar: application form, certificate of school graduation with apostille and translation certified by a sworn translator, certificate validating eligibility to study on the basis of such a certificate in the country where it was issued (a diplomatic agency or a local board of education); in the case of a certificate issued in a country that has not signed the mutual recognition of education agreement with the Republic of Poland, the candidate is additionally required to provide a certificate from the local board of education in Wrocław that validates the certificate school graduation as being equivalent to the Polish secondary school diploma, medical certificate confirming the lack of counter-indications to study, copy of the European Insurance Card or a copy of a document confirming health insurance, copy of passport, four passport photographs (3.7 cm x 4.5 cm), one passport photograph in electronic form, receipt of qualification procedure fee.
